We could recommend the basil pannacotta and the steak! They were amazing. Also great chocolate cakes

I had heard and read a lot of good things about Werner Cafe and wasn't disappointed. Both salty and sweet pastries we had were excellent. Will come again.

A very cosy place for a morning coffee near the Raekoja Plats and University. Big variety of desserts and morning meals.

So far I only had the pleasure of trying a chocolate cake with coffee but the sight and amount of different cakes and all sort of bakeries are absolutely stunning and it is almost impossible to make your choice(s)...

Wide range of sweet cakes and hot drinks. There are also some veggie and meat cakes/"pizzas". You can eat inside or take the food out.

we ordered fish and chips for 12 euro, it did taste horrible, for that kind of money you can get much more and delicious food elsewhere, stick to coffee

During my visit toTartu, I have stopped in 3 afternoons for coffee. The atmosphere is comfortable, service is friendly. I shared a slice of mango-lime cake with a friend and it was delicious.

In 1895, the gourmand and confectioner Johann Werner founded the cafe and it is as charming and elegant as before. I have visited this place many times and I will definitely plan to do this in the future.

Werner Café & Lounge has been operating as a café since 1895. It is a great place to start the day with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. You are welcome to try all of our bakery and confectionery items, either here at the café or buying them to take away. Our head chef has also created a menu with something for everyone, from light snacks to full meals - all accompanied by great service. The restaurant is open from 11.00 am.
